    Brasília 18%

    ★★★★

    Brasília observada do céu, a imagem de um fantasma dirige um médico legista ao assédio, um inconveniente na chegada ao terreno da cidade. Olavo Bilac, o doutor, vem para entregar um laudo afirmando a identidade de um cadáver, Eugênia Câmara, jovem desaparecida depois de se envolver num escândalo com senadores e assessores parlamentares.

It was intended as a follow up to an essay about the core ideas in his films, mostly The Funhouse and Poltergeist (which I want to post on the blog soon), but if you've seen those I don't think there will be any problems understanding the references.
